We are grateful and truly blessed to be doing what we do and to be doing it with the people we have surrounded ourselves with over the years.  This is us thanking you and you thanking us :).


“Curtis Lamey and Spencer Schey provide an outstanding guiding experience and are fun to fish with.  Hard to beat local boys who are committed, talented, experienced, and most of all, know the local waters and fish like the back of their hand.”

Don Muelrath, author – THE HUNT, Fly Fishing’s Greatest Experiences 


“When the going gets weird and the weird turn pro you end up with the Freestone crew.  An eclectic group of guides who are committed to the game and come through for me every time.  Never gets old here; always get a taste of the old  with a dose of the new.  Their portfolio of guidable waters is amazing, some of the best I’ve fished with.”

James Freehill –  Eureka, California


“Our NETOC crew fishes together every September for the last 18 years and has had the pleasure to fish some great waters with great guides. But none better than Curtis and his crew. Nobody better appreciates our shortcomings with a sense of humor and a desire to fish until dark. And then the party starts- because there is much to celebrate after a day with this crew.”

Every year I go to Rock Creek in Montana for a weeks’ fishing.  I try to find rivers along the way to explore.  I’d seen a Todd Moen video about the Elk River and Fernie online.  I searched and found Curtis at the freestone angler.   Curtis was very responsive and helpful in planning the trip.  He took me upstream on the day of and “hooked” me up with Andre.  It so happened that the green drakes were going off that day.  Andre put me on the fish from the first cast and it was a hectic day from then until dark.   We laughed so hard as fish after fish came up and hammered the fly.  It was a day “YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN THERE”!!!   I absolutely loved the scenery and company and would return in a heartbeat.   Thanks Andre and Curtis–
